Net Metering Broken Down
Each kWh of excess solar generation is sent to the grid and credited at the retail power rate.
In a billing month if more energy is sent to the grid than drawn by the home credit is still provided at retail value to future bills within the same 12 month billing cycle. Remaining credits at the end of the 12 months are deposited into your account.
SCE make new solar customers switch to time of use billing under the new NEM-2 rules. While the new rules do reduce returns from net metering by about 10% the decline in panel price and great solar production in Wildomar more than make up for this.
